Tina Fey = American Hero
RyanKennemur

So I believe that the 2000’s will be the century of the funny female. So far we’re hitting it out of the park with the likes of Amy Shumer, Tina Fey and Sarah Silverman. And to a much lesser extent, Whitney Cummings, who is only funny to me because her last name reminds me of something I do irregularly.    To the point, it’s finally dawned on me just how much Tina Fey has influenced the media I consume. She’s even had a guest spot on Disney’s Phineas and Ferb, a show that you would only watch if you had children or were unemployed.   Anyways, here’s to you, Tina Fey! You make the world taste better. You’re

That day that was
RyanKennemur

So we can't really talk about today unless we talk about what happened today. And what happened today was a number of things.   Let's start with the realness. The largest Karaoke contest on television (American Idol) announced that it will soon be cancelled. In other words, your aunt that remembers you singing at the Christmas Pageant in 1998 will finally have nothing to talk to you about. Now it's gonna be "You were always a great singer...you really should try out for....Top....Chef...or something."   What else happened? Well history was made when perennial quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for four games for deflating footballs during the Super

May the Fourth be Sith you
RyanKennemur

So Star Wars was a big part of yesterday’s quiz. As all y’all know, it was May the Fourth (be with you). Always.   Always is a word that doesn’t really apply to Star Wars in my mind anymore. In other words, I “always” thought I’d love it. And now I realize that I don’t anymore.   After the quiz, I went to a pal’s house and watched the new Blu-Ray version of A New Hope. And I couldn’t get through it. There was so much additional CGI that was clearly added in 30 years later that it looks like an old Nintendo and an PS4 got into a pissing match and just got piss everywhere.   It’s

Hi. I'm new here...
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

So I was pretty much born to be a quizmaster. Let’s get that out of the way. I’d go so far to say that almost everything I’ve ever done in my entire life could be described as “trivial”, but that moment won’t come until I’m waaay in the hole with my current therapist. She’s a sweet lady, but if I’m paying you $50 an hour, at least wear something kinda showy. I mean, damn. Anyway, tonight was my first night as a Geeks Who Drink host. But before we get to that, let me get you up to speed. I was born when a guy who reads High Times was president, had some dental work, got a couple of college degrees, got married and had

Happy Devil's Night
Steez McQueen

Man, I am really tapped out for something to say for tonight's blog. So I figured I'd just regale you all with a scary but funny tale. Back in 2002 I had the opportunity to attend the San Diego Comic Con with some friends. Upon entering the convention center, we came upon a cardboard box full of unmarked video cassettes, with the words "Free, Take One" written on it. We took a cassete while joking that it was probably some porn or a crappy art film. We threw it in a bag and went on our way. Later after the con we planned on watching the video but got delayed. I managed to pop it in real quick just to get a preview of what it was. It was grainy black and white footage of a woman brushing

Roving bands of joy locusts
Steez McQueen

You know those trolley pubs you see riding around town. I hate 'em. I just can't stand them, whatsoever. There're all those obnoxious drunk people hanging off of them. Yelling. Waving hello at whoever drives by. "Its Five in the afternoon you jerks. You're not that drunk yet. You're trying too hard to look like you're having a good time." I mean what's the point. You sit at a moving bar and drink, all the while sweating the alcohol out of your system. So you have to drink more. Combine all that booze with all that physical exertion and that's a bad combo. Its like puking while Crossfitting. And these trolley pubs just roam around town, blocking traffic and bringing these jackanapes

What Happened to Tara Reid
Steez McQueen

Normally while blogging I like to throw an old movie on for background noise. Something to fill the silence and keep me entertained while I think of something witty to say. Tonight I picked Natonal Lampoon's Van Wilder.I was all of 25 years old when this movie came out in 2002. I know, I'm old. This was the movie that made us all fall in love with Ryan Reynolds. I don't think he's done anything better since. I'll confess that I'm at a loss for words tonight. Tonight was a fun night at Brewmasters. We always have fun. The patrons enjoyed themselves but so did I. And I really needed a pick me up afer the week I've been having. Thank you all for lifting my spirits. I'll keep doing my best to

Earth, Wind, Fire, and Beer
Steez McQueen

The night started off packed with bar patrons. But I was disappointed to find out that most of them were biding their time waiting for the Earth,Wind,and Fire concert to start. They were kind to indulge at first until I apparently drove them off with my rendition of "Reasons"To hell with them! We didn't need 'em anyway. My true Geeks hung in there for Oktoberfest Stein Hoist sponsored by Sam Adams. Participants had to hold a giant mug filled with beer as if toasting, and whoever held it the longest won free beer as well as the opportunity to win tickets to Oktoberfest in Germany. Apparently all the feats of stength

Crunchwrap City
Steez McQueen

Welcome to Crunchwrap City! Home of the Whoppersonal Jesus. We've got puns, inside jokes and visualy overstuffed quizzes galore. My name is Sequoyah, how may I help you. Its always nice to see customers returning for another heaping help of Geeks Who Drink. They're hungry for knowledge and unlike other chains you get beer with your kid's meal. Tonight was a night with friends until the crowd got a little surly after I accused them of not being fans of The CW. Really? Round 6 was the most unappetizing round. Pop music and fast food shouldn't mix. We learned that over the course of his fictional history, James Bond has been shot 5,026 times. But the real question

Knowing Is Growing
Steez McQueen

Tonight was awesome at Brewmasters! I don't want to toot my own horn but I'm actually getting better at Quizmastery. Is that actually a word?I had a great time and so did the audience. Bad Seeds dominated in first place for the majority of the quiz only to be knocked down to third by Waiting For Lungs who rocketed up from fourth. But the best part of Geeks Who Drink is that we all learned from the quiz. Matter of fact, I learned that the Tamagotchi is still in production and that German Chocolate Cake was actually named for its inventor and not the country. Who knew? Favorite Team Name:I Wish That This Microphone Was A

Most Likely to Quiz
Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!

Greetings, quiz-fans! I hope you are having a great day so far, and that you’ve got some great plans lined up for the weekend. With any luck, your weekend plans won’t fall apart when you arrive at the beach only to discover that your boss is dead, and your only option, for some reason, is to cart his corpse around, pretending it’s alive. But maybe that’s the plot of Weekend at Bernie’s, so I guess that’s not likely to happen to you, but I want you to know that I sincerely hope it doesn’t happen to you. What will I be doing this weekend? Well, thanks for asking! I’m actually moving this weekend; tossing all of my worldly possessions into

Yo, sup? Me? I’m just chillin,’ keep it pretty real and pretty quizzy. Good, I think that’s a nice, casual intro for this blog, hopefully that easy-going salutation will ease you into this thrilling account of last night’s quiz at Brewmasters Bar and Grill.Tonight, we featured a round on Macho Man Randy Savage and terrible Wikipedia edits. I doubt that you guys know this about me (you don’t know me!), but I’m actually the nation’s leading researcher in the history and lore of the “Macho Man.” Over the last couple of years, I’ve been locked in an intense debate with the people at Wikipedia about the veracity
